Until recently, the details we had on the Ferrari F70 were that it would come with a 7.3-liter V12 engine combined with the company’s HY-KERS system for a total of 920 HP. Now, new details suggest that the Enzo successor will in fact be even more powerful, boasting a biturbo engine, most likely a V12, combined with the HY-KERS system and a four-wheel drive system for a mouthwatering 1000 HP. It just keeps getting better and better!
This information was provided by a client who has already ordered the F70, making it extremely plausible. In a previous statement, Ferrari CEO Montezemolo said: "We want to surprise people not just in terms of price but also with the car itself." A full 1000 HP when we only expected 920 HP is surely a huge and welcoming surprise!
The future F70’s V12 engine will be mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and a high-power traction motor that electrifies the seven-speed trans, adding to the power the engine delivers to it. Attached to the gasoline engine is an auxiliary generator that charges the batteries, as needed. Lastly, on top of the transmission is the hybrid power unit, which features two inverters and a smart cooling system.
The new Ferrari F70 will be making its world debut in March 2013, at the Geneva Motor Show.
